Spring Training Game Recap - 3/6/04
On the offensive side of the game there were very few highlights. The best was that of Brian Specht who went 2 for 3 with and RBI. Other notables was a 2 for 2 performance by Jose Molina and Rob Quinlan who was 1 for 3 with 2 RBI's. Casey Kotchman went 1 for 1, Alfredo Amezaga was 1 for 3 and Jeff Davanon had a 2 for 3 day while scoring a run. That was it when it came to scoring runs. On the pitching side it would be hard to find the positive when a pitching staff gives up 26 runs. Several of the Angel minor league pitchers have their work cut out for them if they want to have a respectable ERA before the end of spring training. Most notable is that of Rich Fischer who allowed 7 runs in just 1.2 innings. He gave up two runs and sadly allowed more runs than outs. Other pitchers that stunk were Eric Cyr who allowed 5 runs in just 1.2 innings, Derrick Turnbow allowed 4 runs in just one inning. J. Zamora allowed 5 runs in 2/3 of an inning. Tim Bittner allowed 3 runs in 2 innings with 2 walks and 1 strikeout. Most likely Cyr, Zammora and Bittner have no chance of making the major league roster. The one that stands the most to lose is Derrick Turnbow who is fighting for a spot on the 25 man roster as it stands he is the 26th man on a 25 man roster. Hopefully, for his sake we will see much better outings as the spring unfolds and we get closer to Opening Day 2004.
